It reminds me of the day we had lunch together. A lot of that trip revolved around Piazza del Populo for some reason.
Roseann~ I was in such withdrawal, that I needed to be out in my city all day. At the end of the walk, I was back where I had started.Can't wait for our next lunch...
I love the golden light in the night shot. :)
Lindy~ Funny how that happens, right? Ciao amica
What a spectacular place to be! I like the luminance lights~Thank you :)
I think I like the daytime picture better. There is so much to see. Interestingly, there seems to be the same amount of people in the square at both times of day.
CChuck~ It is indeed a great place to hang out.CiB~ The daytime shot is also sharper. I like the yellow light, the crowd and that you can see St Peter's lit up way in the background.
Eleonora--Amazing how the same place can look so different throughout the day and night. I admit to being partial to the daytime photo as I love that Mediterranean light. I suppose you're quite used to it by now, but there is something so special about it for me.Welcome back to Roma!
I love these photos. I didn't know I could get there, where you are standing. When I was in Piazza del Popolo, there were bleachers, chairs, a stage, and dozens of police cars from many different cities, displayed all in lines, waiting for a large event. It must have bee a police convention. I walked right to Santa Maria del Popolo, to see Caravaggio's 'Conversion of Saul'.I must go back.
Ann~ Thank you! The big wide open space is indeed breathtaking by day, and you're right, thr light is indeed wonderful. I like the yellow in the night shot.Jeff~ I was there too in those days, it was a mega police convention. I loved the police Maserati on display...
We were there the day after la bianca notte in 2006. Lots of scaffolds, banners and bleachers. We stayed near Castle San' Angelo most of the night. I am amazed by the size of Piazza del Popolo
Piazza del Popolo-I have such wonderful memories of that square.
Wow - they are just spectacular photos. And a very grand place. Thanks for a wonderful eye into Rome and for the comments on my little blog.
Oh! Was that you, Eleonora? Now I know why you look familiar...LOL!
I would really, really love to visit Rome someday.
Phenomenal views. Postcard perfect.
Beautiful. I like the daytime shot the best.
Neat to see. I too am surprised at the low number of people.
Great and clever contrast!Your 'It's raining men/aleluiah' comment made me laugh! :-)

Rob~ Did you know that the first edition of Notte Bianca in 2003 Italy experienced a major nationwide black out? Ironic...Loree~ It is a majestic place.Caroline~ Thank *you* or stopping by here and for your sweet comment.Jeff~ Ah, that was *you*? ;)Tracy~ All you have to do is book a flight...Gogouci~Glad you like!Randy~ So far it's leading in the poll... :)T.

I am so very sad that I am not there right now -- these pictures are incredible. My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon in Rome, and then traveled to Formia to meet his extended family, and if I could move to Italy, I would in a heartbeat!
